't it telling that president obama himself did not accuse governor romney of causing women to die from cancer because of things that happened at companies he ran? isn't it telling that president obama didn't make much of this 47% gaffe a week ago. >> sir, why didn't the president bring up any of those things? were you watching this wondering that yourself? >> of course. i was watching it and some of the comments that i hear today make me think people were looking for entertainment instead of substance and facts. i was looking for substance and facts. i saw a president who was very calm, cool and collected. he was looking out for the interest of seniors here in the country as it related to medicare and he was somebody concerned, in my opinion, about the middle class about doing what's right in terms of going forward in terms of diversifying our resources. i know people say this morning that maybe romney was attacking and energetic and all of that sort of thing, but what i saw in the president was somebody who knew his facts, kept his cool, presented himself in a presidential way and i thought

to take its place. >> obama: governor romney says we should replace it. i'm just going to repeal it but we can replace it with something but the problem is he hasn't described what exactly we would replace it with other than saying we're going to leave it to the states. >> bill: good point. president should have driven the point home. mitt romney kept telling the lie that president obama is about a federal takeover of healthcare. >> romney: telling a patient and a doctor who kind of treatment they can have. that's the wrong way to go. the private market and individual responsibility always work best. >> bill: right to the very, very end, jim lehrer, we'll get into jim lehrer later by the way. he was a disaster. total disaster. but jim lehrer right toward the end asked them about how they could get rid of this gridlock in washington, d.c. and whether -- how they could bring both parties together. mitt romney says oh, here's what i'll do. >> romney: as president i'll sit down -- the day after i get elected, i'll sit d

. the cnn polls showed an even more dramatic results. governor romney beating president obama by more than 30 points scoring a record 67 percent of as the winner. the first time a candidate has ever topped 60% in apple. the poll also showing 56 percent had changed their view of romney for the better since last night's debate. we will be taking all of that up here tonight with veteran campaign strategist and a former reagan political director ed rollins, a columnist and fox is political analyst ron williams and later author, former federal prosecutor andrew mccarthy. our next guest was in that debate spin room in denver last night. anchoring fox news coverage, joining us now, threadbare, the host a special report on the fox news channel. welcome. congratulations on another extraordinary evening for the fox news channel. >> thanks, lou. lou: let's start with your impressions, if we may, of the two men because it was -- i think most of us were a little surprised with the aggressiveness of governor romney and that seeming sort of hangdog continents of the president's in the lack of response to
they defend those ideas. and they got to hear that last night. president obama and governor romney got to have an open-ended exchange on i think the most important questions in this campaign. and isn't it telling last night that president obama himself did not bring up bain capital? isn't it telling that president obama himself didn't accuse governor romney of causing women to die from cancer because of things that happened in companies he ran? isn't it telling that president obama didn't make much of this 47% gaffe a week ago? >> he did make money of the $5 trillion tax cut. >> well, let me talk about that. >> let me just finish my question, which is that there is also a perception by people following this that we saw a conservative mitt romney in the primaries and now we are seeing a more centerist mitt romney l. the real mitt romney please stand up. >> let's talk about the fact for you now, do you know where that number comes from? $3 trillion, first of all, it's a ten-year number. $3 trillion of it is letting the bush tax cuts continue. now, most americans would believe that continuing the

of the november vote. for both candidates, risks are high. >> president obama and governor romney. [ applause ] >> reporter: americans got their first chance to size up the candidates side by side. they've watched the incumbent for four years. barack obama came into office promising to lead a turnaround. but economy growth has been sluggish. still, he leads in a number of polls, but only just. >> the only way to meet governor romney's pledge of not reducing the deficit, or not adding to the deficit, is by burdening middle-class families. now, that's not my analysis. >> reporter: mitt romney has tried to make the case that his business experience prepares him to lead a recovery. but his support slipped after he was caught on video making dismissive remarks about almost half the american electorate. he said his job is not to worry about the 47% of them who pay no income taxes and are dependent on government. so romney went on the offensive. >> the president has a view very similar to the view he had when he ran four years ago, that a bigger government, spending more, taxing more, regulating mor

seem all that bad. >> let's let the governor explain what you would do if obama care is repealed. how would you replace it? >> actually it's a lengthy description but, number one, preexisting conditions are covered under my plan. number two, young people are able to stay on their family plan. >> what a machine, the etch a sketch. but one question for governor romney -- h how do you draw battle lines if they're all going to be dotted? where do you stand? >> i can't figure it out. >> well, you know walls of obfuscation, my friend. the question is, can romney make this pivot, which seem to be towards the center at this point in the game, and win over independent voters? >> look, there are very few really big moments in campaign. last night was one of those moments. there are a lot of people who have not been watching as much tape as your producers apparently have. give romney his due. he had a very compelling night. he crisply delivered his points. he was conversational. he had command of the policy and the facts. and it's up to president obama now to put him to where his record and say,
the obama campaign were actually never mentioned. the $716 billion number, which governor romney mentioned, was never debunked and it had been debunked many times before. he didn't bring up the governor's taxes or talk about immigration policies. big impact, i would think, of those misses in this debate. >> that's why i'm listening to the governor talking about skating and dancing around the questions, you might argue that president obama skated and danced around what he needed to do. because this wasn't just a serious of speeches. this was a debate. they were supposed to engage one another. and i can't imagine that the governor isn't dispointed that the president wasn't more aggressive in sayinsaying, okay governor romney, what are the specifics is? how are you going to reform the tax code? >> there was a quote from a james carville, governor, who, of course, is a big obama supporter, and basically his assessment was, the president was just not sharp. here's what he said. let's play that. >> i had one overwhelming impression. i did everything i could not to reach it, but i had to reach it
mitchell reports," a bout last night, president obama and governor romney, what both are saying about their debate performance. >> when i got on to the stage, i met this very spirited fellow who claimed to be mitt romney. but it couldn't have been mitt romney because the real mitt romney has been running around the country for the last year promising $5 trillion in tax cuts that favor the wealthy, the fellow on stage last night said he didn't know anything about that. >> last night i thought was a great opportunity for the american people to see two very din visions for the country. and i think it was helpful to be able to describe those visions. i saw the president's vision as trickle down government and i don't think that's what america believes in. >> overnight polls and "the denver post" give round one to romney. as a republican challenger went after the president's record. >> i just don't know how the president could have come into office, facing 23 million people out of work, rising unemployment, and economic crisis at the kitchen table, and spent his energy and passion fo
